Today we introduce a particularly special home - this beautiful 1960's suburban gem belongs to our Sydney contributor @amber_creswell_bell and her family. Surrounded by amazing trees in the leafiest street in Sydney's Turrumurra, it's not exactly a 'tree change' but close enough ! Amber and Andy were both previously very 'inner city' folk, but say moving here with their two young kids was the best decision they've made! Full story on TDF today, with pics by @evegwilson 🌿
theadventuresofoakes : Me too! @mcontraire
meredithgaston : What a beautiful home and story @amber_creswell_bell @thedesignfiles πŸ’—

Flashback to the start of our partnership with @robertgordonaustralia - this plate, made by @kateygordon over 6 months ago (!!) was the starting point for our #thesereneseries tableware collaboration for #TDFopenhouse ! After many subsequent meetings, emails , phonecalls and endless experimentation, the full range of plates and vases was developed. Exquisite !!! πŸ‘Œ

So so excited to announce a very special collab I've been keeping under my hat !! This beautiful range of vases and plates is The Serene Series, an exclusive collaboration with @robertgordonaustralia , especially for #TDFopenhouse !! I worked closely with amazing @kateygordon and her team to come up with the look and feel of this range (although they did all the hard work - mould making, endlessly experimenting with various glazing methods and producing the finished designs!). I am THRILLED with the results, and hope you all love them as much as we do! many more beautiful pics of the collaboration process by @seanfennessy up on TDF today. πŸ‘Œ#thesereneseries

Your best mates are the ones who give up their Sunday to help install an integrated fridge and freezer unit at #TDFopenhouse πŸ‘ thanks @jonagunn ! This epic fridge and all appliances in our kitchen are by @siemens , floorboards by @royaloakfloors πŸ‘Œ

anh2d2 : Thanks @thedesignfiles yes I've been through about 10 sample pots! But I think mirage blue (the last pot i have bought after seeing your bedroom post) is the one! It looks gorgeous but more toward the lighter side as we are basked in natural light. Still bold and beautiful :)
bbiitter : @blllle πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
thedesignfiles : @anh2d2 great to hear! Pop along to our event if you're in Melbourne to see this colour in person! it's on Dec 4th - 7th x

Each year we are overwhelmed with so much lovely support in the media for #TDFopenhouse ! one of our biggest supporters each year has been @leetranlam and the team at @insideoutmag - Thankyou guys for including us in your December issue, so grateful for your wonderful support once again! (This beautiful shot is my absolute fave from all our publicity pics! - our beautiful moody master bedroom featuring @duluxaus 'Mirage Blue' walls, @royaloakfloors French Grey herringbone floorboards, furniture by @jardanaustralia and circle shelf from @brideandwolf πŸ‘Œ) photo by @evegwilson x

tribalmodern : Gorgeous, love those moody blue/grey hues
victoria_lw : Love that wall colour
buntingbydesign : @brideandwolfe yay for you! xx
thedesignfiles : Oh sorry @brideandwolfe !
leetranlam : Whoa, thank you for the incredibly lovely shout-out! It's such a huge pleasure to get behind your great projects, Lucy! The way you always set higher limits for yourself - and then totally smash through them is a total inspiration! Can't believe you're basically building a place from scratch this year; wish I could teleport to Melbourne to see it in person, but will have to live vicariously through all the amazing Instagrams. Lots of luck and can't wait to see all the great results as they appear on my feed (filtered or not)!
leetranlam : Thank you, @theprojectagency - always amazing to work with and always too kind!
